(3.6 out of 5, based on 18 reviews)

Until now, behavior media, books, DVDs and tapes have offered direction on the interaction of companion parrots and their humans. The Importance of Toys focuses on the specific suitability of toys and perches. Guidelines and colorful footage is provided on placement and safety inspections. Close-ups of real bird homes cagescaped by professionals provide refreshing visuals. This Parrot Behavior DVD Offers Useful Toy, Perch Information and Placement Techniques for Today's Exotic Bird Companion . According to Michelle Karras, professional bird behaviorist & companion to six Congo African Greys, two Umbrella Cockatoo's, two Blue and Gold Macaw's, one African Meyers, one Mustache Parakeet, three dogs, two cats, one rabbit, two children and an iguana. ”Providing a stimulating environment is paramount to the mental well being of your companion parrot. I tell people, your bird is a three year old in a feather suit, you need to be prepared to make the same commitment that you would in bringing a foster child into your home.” Essential “Step Up” training, the equivalent of teaching a dog to “sit and stay,” empowers rookies and seasoned veterans alike with handling these beautiful creatures. The “laddering exercise” is covered which promotes handling feathered companions while making training fun for the birds. Anyone outside aviculture assumes bird toys are mindless entertainment for large noisy pets. With the functioning intelligence level of a toddler and life expectancies of 20 to 70 years, research now confirms that play time is actually foraging time, in the birds mind. The majority of loving bird owners now know that their parrots need much more to have a happy life. Over the last 20 years, Aviculture has gone from a small exotic hobby to a vast industry. According to PIJAC (The Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council) in 1990 there were 11 million pet birds living in 5.1 million households in the US. By 1996, the number of birds had grown to 40 million while the number of homes remained fairly consistent at 5.9 million. Today the US domestic psittacine population slowly approaches 100 million. This production will help you understand your parrot better and be able to assist you in providing a happy environment for your feathered companion. $10 MSRP Toll free number is 877.287.0810.
